About the Farmer

This coffee is sourced from Finca El Morrito, located in the municipality of El Retiro. El Retiro was formerly known as "El Cuarzo" due to the many quartz and gold mines in the area. Close to one of the quartz mines, Martin Villada runs his farm together with his family. Together, they produced this exceptional microlot.

Located in the country’s northwestern part, the department of Antioquia is the birthplace of coffee in Colombia and one of its largest coffee production areas. Due to the mountainous landscape with a mellow and humid climate, this area has a rich heritage of coffee cultivation. Some of the finest Colombian coffees originate in this region.

Embedded between the Cordillera Occidental and the Cordillera Central, the Andean mountain ranges in Antioquia create a unique microclimate nourished by several small rivers that curl through the valley. The average temperature remains steady between 17 and 23 °C with balanced rainfalls. All of this provides excellent conditions for coffee production in the rural hills surrounding the metropolitan valley of Medellín. On top of that, Antioquia’s soil has a reputation of superb quality, with the capacity of preserving water and allowing for water supply even during dry periods.
